Monica, who goes by Micki, moved to Kauai in 1979. Originally from New York, she has also lived in Vermont, Maine, Mexico and Guam. With a degree in French literature, she is not quite sure how she ended up in the middle of the Pacific. She is married to her high school sweetheart, Bill, a retired pediatrician and former CEO of Wilcox Hospital and Kauai Medical Clinic. They have 4 grown kids, all of whom have returned to Kauai to live. Yoga, drawing and reading keep her barely sane.
Micki has been an active real-estate agent since 1984 and was one of the former owners of Sleeping Giant Sotheby's International Realty, which is now Oceanfront Sotheby’s International Realty. That experience combined with forty years of living on the island gives her a wealth of knowledge in both real estate and the ins and outs of living on Kauai. As an artist/designer, she recognizes diamonds in the rough and finds properties of exceptional beauty and value, often overlooked by others. A home she remodeled was named by Conde Nast Travel Magazine as one of the five best vacation rentals in Hawaii. She currently is also the founder and co-owner of KIKO, a lifestyle store in Kapaa Town.
